In 2015, A Life of Education founder, Caroline Leon survived a life threatening rock-climbing accident, after she fell 7m. Over the course of two years she under went 14 surgeries to repair; two shattered calcanei, reconstruct multiple broken bones in each foot, along with re-attaching her shattered right ilium, reconstructing her right pubic bone and replacement/reconstruction of her T12, L1 & L2 vertebrae.
By the time Caroline had taught herself to walk again, it was time for her to progress and step out of the clinical setting. Her effort to find a rehabilitation instructor to effectively take her through this complex stage of her rehab, proved more difficult than anticipated.
After numerous negative and disappointing experiences, Caroline was finally recommended to contact rehabilitation specialist Keith O'Malley-Farrell from The Physical Training Company. Keith had a wide ranging experience rehabilitating patients recovering from complex trauma injuries during his time working in the UK with the British Military.
